This Place Called Hell by Adrian Rogers

THIS PLACE CALLED HELL
ADRIAN ROGERS
REVELATION 21:6-8
10/24/93

I WANT YOU TO TAKE GOD'S WORD AND TURN WITH ME,
PLEASE, TODAY TO REVELATION, CHAPTER 21 AND WE'RE
GOING TO READ VERSES 7 AND 8. REVELATION, CHAPTER 21
VERSES 7 AND 8. AND AS YOU ARE FINDING THAT IN YOUR
BIBLE, MAY I SAY THAT THE SUBJECT THAT I HAVE WITH ME
TODAY FOR YOU IS A DIFFICULT SUBJECT AND I'VE ACTUALLY
TRIED TO TALK MYSELF OUT OF PREACHING THIS MESSAGE.
AND I'LL TELL YOU WHY.

IT'S NOT A HAPPY MESSAGE. I'D MUCH RATHER SAY
SOMETHING ABOUT JOY, ABOUT LIFE, ABOUT VICTORY, (AND
ALL OF THAT NEEDS TO BE PREACHED) BUT I AM CONVINCED
THAT THE MISSING MESSAGE IN TODAY'S CHURCH AND
ESPECIALLY ON THE AIR WAVES IS THE MESSAGE CONCERNING
HELL. AND I BELIEVE THAT WE'RE REAPING THE BENEFITS OF
FAILING TO BRING THAT MESSAGE. I BELIEVE THE REASON WE
HAVE SO MUCH, SO-CALLED HELL IN OUR WORLD IS BECAUSE
WE HAVE SO LITTLE IN OUR PULPITS.

I BELIEVE THAT WE NEED TO SOUND THE ALARM. AND THIS
MESSAGE IS A MESSAGE TO SOUND THE ALARM. AND I WANT TO
SAY THAT I'M NOT SPEAKING THIS MORNING PRIMARILY TO
THE LOST. MOST LOST PEOPLE ARE NOT SAVED BY HEARING A
MESSAGE ON HELL. MANY ARE, BUT I'M PREACHING PRIMARILY
TO THE CHURCH: THOSE OF US WHO ARE SAVED! BECAUSE SO
MANY TIMES WE FAIL TO BE PROPERLY MOTIVATED TO SHARE
THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST. ONE GREAT MOTIVATION IS
THE LOVE OF GOD THAT CONSTRAINS US.

ANOTHER GREAT MOTIVATION IS, AS PAUL SAID, "KNOWING
THE TERROR OF THE LORD WE PERSUADE MEN." SOME OF YOU
HAVE LOVED ONES WHO ARE GOING TO DIE AND GO TO HELL
UNLESS YOU BRING THE MESSAGE OF SALVATION AND THE
MESSAGE OF REDEMPTION TO THEM. AND IT IS THE CHURCH
THAT NEEDS TO BE WARNED. WE NEED TO BE SHOCKED OUT OF
OUR LETHARGY.

NOW, AGAIN, I WANT TO SAY THAT IF I AM A FAITHFUL
PREACHER OF THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST, I'M GOING TO
HAVE TO PREACH THE WHOLE COUNSEL OF GOD. AND I'M GONNA
HAVE TO PREACH AS JESUS PREACHED. AND I WANT TO REMIND
YOU OF THIS: THAT JESUS CHRIST HAD MORE TO SAY ABOUT
THE PLACE CALLED "HELL" THAN ANY OTHER PERSON IN THE
BIBLE. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT?

NOW LISTEN TO THIS SCRIPTURE, REVELATION 21, VERSE
SEVEN, "HE THAT OVERCOMETH SHALL INHERIT ALL THINGS
AND I WILL BE HIS GOD, AND HE SHALL BE MY SON." WHAT A
WONDERFUL PROMISE THAT IS!! BUT NOW LISTEN TO VERSE 8,
"BUT THE FEARFUL, AND UNBELIEVING, AND THE ABOMINABLE,
AND MURDERERS, FORNICATORS, AND SORCERERS, AND
IDOLATERS, AND ALL LIARS SHALL HAVE THEIR PART IN THE
LAKE WHICH BURNETH WITH FIRE AND BRIMSTONE, WHICH IS
THE SECOND DEATH.

I'M TOLD THAT ON AN OCCASION, SOME SAILORS ABOARD A
SHIP ASKED THEIR CHAPLAIN THIS QUESTION, THEY SAID,
"CHAPLAIN, DO YOU BELIEVE IN HELL?" HE SAID, "I
CERTAINLY DO! WHY DID YOU ASK?" THEY SAID, "FOR THIS
REASON," THEY SAID, "IF THERE IS A HELL, AND YOU DON'T
BELIEVE IN IT, WE DON'T WANT YOU FOR A CHAPLAIN, BUT,"
THEY SAID,"IF THERE IS NO HELL, WE DON'T NEED ANY
CHAPLAIN." A GOOD THOUGHT, BUT, ...
